svn diff and gvimdiff

Hello Everyone,

I would like to use gvimdiff to display the diff from svn diff. Is
there a way to do this? Right now I get the following (from bash with
'set -x'):

> + svn diff --diff-cmd=gvimdiff Tag.java
> Index: Tag.java
> ===========================================...=
> 4 files to edit
> E282: Cannot read from "-L"

It looks like svn diff is not passing what I think it should be to
gvimdiff. In fact, it looks like gvimdiff is trying to open "-L" as
one of the files to be diffed.

I took a quick look around google and in the svn book but I couldn't
find any information about how svn calls the supplied diff command.

Machine information:
Client and server are both running on the same debian machine. I'm
running kernel-image 2.6.8-1-k7.

svn --version gives:
> svn, version 1.0.9 (r11378)
> compiled Oct 16 2004, 23:29:24

> * ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.

> * ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.

Can anyone offer some insight?

Thanks,

Bryan
